Read full description of the books Der träumende Diamant: Erdmagie:Beautifully written just like “The Smoke Thief”, this book just sings and lulls you into a fairytale world. Everything is so vivid and bright making even the most banal things sparkle. Abé just keeps you turning the pages to see what will happen next all the while slowly building the sexual tension between Zane and Lia.
Zane is a fantastic hero. He’s so jaded. The dry humor and “digs” in this book are top notch. Lia turns out to be a lot stronger than I thought she would be too. The two of them make for a very well-matched couple. Their adventure to find the diamond is filled with twists and turns really giving you the feel of going to the far reaches of the earth.
My only complaint is that it’s missing some outright steam scenes early on. When it does happen it’s quite “explosive” and it’s a wonderful love story but I’d have like to have seen a little bit more. It all seemed a bit too bunched together at the end.
Like the first book, this is one of the best written novels I’ve come across –not necessarily the best story but the writing style is really in a class by itself. 4 ½ stars and on to book 3 :)
Read information about the authorShana Abé was born in Texas. She spent much of her childhood living in Colorado, with a brief stint in Mexico as a foreign exchange student, and, at age seventeen, lived in Japan as a model. Throughout her childhood, Abé wrote, completing what she calls "The Silliest Romance Novel Ever" during her free time during modeling shoots. Her writing focused on romance, as those were the types of books that she most enjoyed reading. She later attended college in Los Angeles, graduating with a degree in drama.
Her second novel, also a contemporary romance, took third place in a writing contest. She sent the book to several prospective agents, many of which responded with questions similar to "Nice voice — but what line are you writing for?" Unwilling to try to fit her writing into some of the rules that governed contemporary romances, Abé chose to concentrate on historical romances. For her first attempt at a historical romance, the newlywed Abé chose to tell the story of her own romance with her husband, set in medieval times. The manuscript was purchased by Bantam Books and published as A Rose in Winter.
Many of Abé's subsequent novels have also been set in the medieval time period. Abé chose the time period because of its "great sense of dichotomy....It inspires thoughts of grandeur, of courtly grace and chivalrous knights — but at the same time there's a gritty, raw aspect to the period that just cannot be denied."
Abé has received the Romantic Times Career Achievement Award, and has been nominated six times for Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Awards, winning twice
